Consumable of the month

Do you order laboratory consumable items from us online or via our order form?  If you need just one blood tube or swab, or enough for a herd, we’ve got you covered.

Our featured consumable item this month is the ever trusty 70mL sample pottle.

This sample container is suitable for so many sample types – urine, faeces, fresh tissue, hair, skin scrapes, lumps and bumps, nails, milk, body fluids (please no blood or samples for cytology). We highly recommend you have a stock of them in the clinic.

So often we receive samples inappropriately packaged in surgical gloves, zip-lock bags, envelopes, jam jars, hummus containers etc. and while the latter two are acceptable for non-sterile samples, the first three are not acceptable at all.  The samples we usually receive in surgical gloves and plastic bags are most often faeces, which makes them even more hazardous!  So please load yourself up with a bunch of these so you always have them on hand.  They are literally cheaper than chips, so there really is no excuse.

If you would like to be in to win a few of these, make sure you stay tuned to our Facebook page and enter the giveaway this month.
